Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu has said she will not relent in her quest to improve the lives of her people amid fights with Members of County Assembly (MCAs).

The first term county boss maintained that she will not be threatened by the MCAs, who have been accusing her of mismanaging the county's affairs. 

Speaking during the launch of Sh232 million World Bank’s grant project, Ngilu said she is committed on her development agenda. 

She was accompanied by the county's Lands and Infrastructure Executive Jacob Kakundi.

Ngilu, Kivutha Kibwana (Makueni) and Alfred Mutua (Machakos) claim that Wiper MCAs have been sabotaging their administrations.

 “I am up to the task and I won’t be diverted from serving the electorate diligently,” said Ngilu in part.

The governor said she will ensure that residents benefit from the fruits of devolution.

“My plan is to empower residents economically and ensure they enjoy fruits of devolution. I will ensure their needs are taken care of,” she added.

Ngilu, Mutua, and Kibwana have urged the electorates to consider replacing former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka as the Kamba political kingpin before 2022 polls. 

Kibwana said he won’t be threatened to endorse Kalonzo for the top seat when that time comes.

He told other leaders from the region to contest for the position in the next presidential race.
